Among a variety of stoves the leading position occupied by two kinds of home appliances: Induction heating surface and the glass pane and the heating elements. At first glance, modern devices are quite similar, It unites them consistently stylish, intuitive interface. The question naturally arises, what's better: induction cooker and ceramic hob for cooking in the kitchen.
Technical differences can be summarized in three key points: type of heating element, Heat transmission method and features of.
Induction glass ceramic surface equipped with a coil as a heater, which induces a magnetic field. The glass-ceramic surface equipped with conventional heating elements: tape, halogen or spiral. Heating spirals are hidden under the surface of the hotplate (Unlike legacy Tenova plates, wherein the heater withdrawn to the outside and serves hob).
Principle of operation "Tenova"Plates implies intensive heating burners, which transfers heat ware. A magnetic field induction plate transfers heat to the bottom of dishes, that provides greater heating rate, economical power consumption and safety of use.
Technical characteristics of the "induction" are in the presence of the fan for cooling and creating a small electromagnetic field. A conventional hot plates with heating elements operate silently, It has no effect on people or standing beside the device. there is current models of hobs combine two types of induction heating and Tenova.
The practical difference
The difference is expressed in the technical aspects and the practical use of various types of electric cookers. it, perhaps, the most significant factors, because user-friendliness plays an important role, and no difference in conversion of electrical energy into heat.
Below is a summary table, where clearly shown, the difference between the induction hob from Tenova ceramic from a practical point of view.
|meaning||The glass-ceramic plate||induction cookers|
|Time boil a liter of cold water||Up to three minutes||Up to seven minutes|
|The surface temperature||No more 55 - 60 ° C||Burners reach high temperatures, approximately median varies 180 - 280 ° C, limit value can reach 400 - 450 ° C|
|Security||The probability of injury from fire or oil fire is practically impossible||The device requires a careful use, in order to avoid injuries.|
|Features of operation||For the induction cooker is suitable only certain dishes with a magnetic bottom, without defects and chips.
Fan noise during operation.
|the dishes are simple requirements: smooth and clean surface of the bottom.
Ceramic hot plates are not resistant to mechanical shock point, abrasive detergents.
Glass ceramic and induction: strengths
The difference between the induction hob and ceramic hob, undoubtedly, present. For every user has its own priorities and requirements for household appliances, best option - an optimal combination of advantages and minor flaws.
Advantages of the induction hob due to their working principle. They quickly warmed dishes (water in a ware), but it is much safer. Energy consumption is relatively small. For such devices easier to care, due to low temperatures, to the surface do not burn leftover food.
Interesting fact! Many users during frying shrouded surface plate conventional napkins, that absorb fat drops. This unusual way of cooking preserves the purity and does not contradict the rules of operation.
By such a functional device over contemporary:
- precise temperature control;
- burners react quickly to temperature changes, they do not need time to cool down;
- All models are equipped with sleep timer, which can control all heating zones or each individually;
- the presence of the cooking modes: basic setup time / temperature, inexperienced users will be easier to understand, under what parameters it is more convenient to cook soup, or to melt chocolate;
- you can choose a model with automatic dishwashing size (FlexInduction function);
- the presence of more than one burner circuit;
- automatic shutdown is triggered in the absence of dishes, boiling liquid, but these options are not included in the "basic";
- standard features: block panel of children, unit panel for a given mode,, Residual heat indicators.

The advantages of the glass-ceramic panels tenami to less stringent requirements for the bowl and the relatively rapid heating burners. In comparison with an induction hob, teny glass ceramic plates slowly heated food, but evaluating objectively - the difference in 4 – 5 minutes are not critical.
Use appliances of this type is quite simple, the process will not cause any difficulties. Touch control sometimes combines mechanical switches.
The competitive advantage of this technique - the cost, which is much lower, than competitors. Add to that the savings on new pot (partial), the difference is more than palpable.
Functionality not differ significantly in comparison with induction devices:
- the presence of more than one burner circuit;
- cooking end timer;
- The residual heat indicator;
- blocking for protection against accidental starting (Child Lock);
- block set cooking mode;
- power indication;
- safety shutdown;
- Smooth or step power adjustment;
- disabling the absence ware;
- an increase in power of the front burners Power Booster.
Requirements for the bowl
Another important difference between induction hob from any glass-ceramic panel tenami - a different type of cookware. Basic requirements for simple dishes: smooth, flat and thick bottom, without defects and impurities. The difference is, that use of the induction hob bottom pot or pan to be magnetically, ie. in the composition of the metal must be a member to become a, cast iron. At Tenova plates can be prepared in containers of any material, which withstands high temperatures: stainless steel, ceramics, glass or aluminum. The last type - not the best option, Aluminum cookware can leave traces on the surface.
Some people are interested, suitability of induction cookware with a magnetic bottom for glass ceramic plates. for example, with the purchase of combined models, the question is really relevant. Specialized kitchen utensils for induction type panels to suit any of the other plate: gas, electrical (rapidnoй, halohennoy, hi-light). it, undoubtedly, advantage. Usually, dishes such high-quality and durable, but this is due to the high price.
Best cooker - what is it?
A similar question asks himself every user before purchase. Evaluating the pros and cons, and ease, It must be concluded, It differs from the ceramic hob induction hob.
Ceramic panel tenami. Resume. If the family budget is limited - the right choice. Devices have different protective functions, but they should not be left unattended for a long time. Users will have to be vigilant in order to avoid injuries and accuracy to maintain cleanliness.
induction panel. Resume. Modern technological and not only in appearance, but inside. If a small fan noise does not interfere with the comfort cooking, and financial capabilities allow change of the cookware, the induction - the best choice. they are safe, functional and easy to clean. As they say the owners of such devices "If once cooked on induction cooker, then the other will not agree ".
